Over the summer, around 200 Iranian teenagers in the Iran region will have the opportunity to gather together to learn more about our glorious God.
At two residential conferences, the next generation will be learning about God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. There will be time for vibrant worship, strong Bible teaching, and memorable times of fellowship, according to Elam Ministries.
The teenagers who will attend are members of Persian-speaking churches in the Iran region. Rarely do they have the opportunity for fellowship with large groups of their peers. And some have yet to make personal decisions to follow Christ.
“We firmly believe that God is calling the next generation of Iranian Christ-followers to do greater things than the generations that have gone before. That’s why we are committed to investing in the young people of the Iranian church,” said David Yeghnazar, Executive Director of Elam Ministries in a ministry update.
“Please join us in praying as we invest in precious young people, for the ministry team as they prepare for the conference, and for salvation for those not yet following Jesus, and for all the teens to walk closer with the Lord as a result of these conferences.”
